Assume a portfolio with 35% stocks (S), 35% bonds (B), and 30% in a mutual fund (F). The expected return from stocks is 12%, the expected return on the mutual fund is 7%, and the expected return from bonds is 5%. What is the expected return on this portfolio?

A. 8.00%
B. 8.05%
C. 8.15%
Correct Answer: B

The expected return for the portfolio is calculated as follows: E(R) = 0.35 x 12 + 0.35 x 5 + 0.3 x 7 = 8.05%

BayAreaPablo Watch out for the E(Mutual Fund) = 7% and E(Bond)=5%. If you switch these (due to fast reading) you will get 8.15%.
